    Aerobic Respiration:• Happens when we breathe in oxygen.
    •Takes place in our bodies to release energy from food. • Oxygen helps break down food completely.• It produces a lot of energy and carbon dioxide.•We feel energized and can keep doing activities for a long time.<div>

    Anaerobic Respiration:

    •Happens when there is not enough oxygen available.
    • Occurs in some organisms, like bacteria and yeast. • Food is not broken down completely without oxygen.• It produces less energy and sometimes alcohol or lactic acid.•We feel tired quickly and cannot keep doing activities for a long time.

    Remember, aerobic means “with air” (oxygen) and anaerobic means “without air” (oxygen). Both types of respiration are important for different organisms and situations.
